Tasting Notes Le Pin 1989

96

Tasted at Bipin Desai's Le Pin vertical in Los Angeles. What a fabulous Pomerol this is! A markedly different bouquet to the Le Pin '90, with notes of melted dark chocolate, macerated black cherries, mulberry, Medjool dates and with time, cloves. It seems to gain intensity in the glass. Conversely the full-bodied palate displays more restraint than the '90, good acidity and fine tannins, vibrant and beautifully poised with a citrus seam running from start to finish. It comes across as less exotic and ostentatious than the '90, but it remains a svelte, seductive wine that is relishing its peak. If it were a actress, it would be prime Jane Russell. 710 cases produced. Drink now-2018. Tasted November 2008.

A slightly firmer, more structured wine than the 1990, with similarly low acid but more noticeable tannin, the color remains a very healthy saturated ruby/purple. The nose needs more coaxing and offers up noted of coconut, roasted herbs, jus du viande, along with plenty of black currant and sweet cherry fruit with nicely integrated toasty oak. The wine has similarly high levels of glycerin to the 1990, but less accessibility, and more structure and possibly power. This is a remarkable wine, and certainly one of the great vintages for Le Pin. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2022. Last tasted, 12/01.
